How to make it
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Set aside 3- to 4-quart heavy casserole with lid.
- Cut an "X" about 1/2-inch deep into cabbage core. Cook in boiling salted water to cover cabbage until leaves are pliable, about 10 minutes; drain. Cool enough to handle; remove large outer leaves (about 12 leaves). Cut out thick hard veins. Chop enough of remaining cabbage to measure 1 3/4 cups using food processor. (Reserve remaining cabbage for another use.)
- Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add garlic and onion. Cook until soft, stirring often, about 6 minutes.
- Transfer to large mixing bowl. Add bread crumbs, prunes, ground meat, eggs, allspice, mustard, salt, pepper and chopped cabbage. Mix well.
- To assemble casserole, arrange three cabbage leaves to cover bottom of casserole. Add one-third of meat mixture, spreading it evenly. Layer three more leaves, covering meat. Repeat layering, ending with a layer of cabbage. Lightly compress casserole with hands.
- For sauce, mix tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and salt in processor. Pour mixture over casserole.
- Bake, covered, for 2 hours. Can be served immediately or cooled for 2 hours with cover askew at room temperature, then refrigerated up to 3 days.
- Serve hot. If refrigerated, reheat in 350-degree oven until hot, about 45 minutes. Cut into wedges; top with tomato marmalade.
